I’ve seen some really great “Cookie Splash” shots on flickr and I’ve been wanting to try it.
Now, I don’t drink coffee (or even own a coffee cup) so I had to think of something else. Being so hot lately, I decided on using a nice refreshing glass of Lemonade.
I also don’t even own a flash, so I had to do it outside in the sun to get the fast shutter speed.
I really had fun with these – I’ll probably be doing more soon!
The settings for these shots are virtually the same
Exposure: 1/4000s at f2.8
Focal Length: 108mm (far enough away to not get splash on the lens!)
Put the camera on a tripod, set it to “Burst” mode (In this case I did a 6 shot burst)
Hold the drop item over the glass, when the burst starts drop or throw the item into the glass – easy as that!
